Mr. Grant from Pickens SC is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students of an impoverish community the opportunity to learn to play the ukulele.
My students are music-loving, inquisitive, good humored, and eager to learn. My students enjoy playing sports, playing video games, building things, and drawing. We live in a small rural community in South Carolina. Our school is a Title I school with approximately 70 percent of our students living at or below the poverty level. As indicated by district, state, and national testing data, our students are performing below average in reading/language arts and math.
My musically under exposed students will thrive with real-life hands on learning by having ukuleles to create beautiful sounds.
Being from low socio-economic households, these students do not have a lot of experience with instrumental. School is a safe environment to investigate and explore a plethora of musical genres and instruments.
In a Title I school, most students do not have opportunities with the arts. As a first year music teacher, my classroom inventory of instruments is limited. By purchasing ukuleles, my students will be engaged with learning musical notes, rhythm, melody, and harmony on a string instrument. Students will learn the proper technique to play the ukulele. These ukuleles will also be used to accompany classroom songs connected to content learning in their classrooms as well as school-wide performances. These instruments can even be used as a community outreach as part of service learning with performances for local nursing homes, senior centers, and medical facilities
The ukulele is a string instrument that produces an acoustic sound that is kid friendly in size and skill level.
Providing students with the opportunity to play an instrument stimulates a love of musical learning that will last a life-time.
